Hard Copies..

Well it looks like we are going to Illinois again! Kris got his hard copy orders yesterday and that means barring any unforeseen event with the navy .. we will be reporting to Illinois no later than Jan. 8th!

I have say I am looking forward to it mostly because we will be closer to the east coast and have more chance of seeing family! Another huge reason is we will have a bigger house in Illinois than we do here.. a MUCH bigger house and Air Conditioning!

So in a little over 5 months .. we will be once again packing up and making a move.. I will miss the ladies that I have made friends with here.. but I am looking forward to meeting some new people and seeing some old friends.

7 years ago

I married the love of my life. Times have been rough here and there but times have been good too. We have worked hard on our love and will continue to work on it in the years to come. I wouldn't have it any other way.

There are so many things that happened after we first met to draw us to one another. Because of all of those random occurrences I cannot believe anything else but that everything happens for a reason.

This was our very first picture together.. so young!

That was almost 9 years ago.. and I am happier today than I have ever been.. even with all of the random problems that we go through I would not change anything.
I love you Angel! Always!!

This one is from back in Jan. but it is still a good picture.. :)

Runners Expo!

A friend of mine told me about a runners expo in Seattle on Friday so of course I was interested in going. Especially since I really needed some headbands for the 5k next month. It was the Rock -N- Roll Expo for her Half Marathon which she TOTALLY ROCKED btw!

So Mystry and I got ready and met Photina & her girls at the ferry terminal.. we barely made it onto the boat.. we had to high tail it down the ramp to get there on time.. it was rather

The trip was quick over to Seattle, then we walked over to Qwest field.. and other than some super slow walk lights made it there fairly quick.

Our first stop (other than the bathrooms.. haha) was Hippie runner for some headbands.. I was very happy to find some matching headbands for Mystry and I to wear during the See Jane Run 5k next month..:)
Our awesome headbands! The two on the left are the ones we are wearing for the race..hehe..

Also with some nudging from Photina I got some great protein bars.. PR bars have great taste and with 15g of protein and only around 200 calories.. that makes me happy!

Now I am looking forward to the See Jane Run Expo next month even more since I know what it is all about! I look forward to taking some time to look all around it..and of course next time I will bring a camera.. lol

I have gone running with my niece twice now since she has been here and I have discovered something important... I absolutely have to give myself a goal.

When we went running the first time I just turned on my tracker and went.. and ended up giving up around 2 miles or so.. but when we went out the second time I put the timer on for 45 minutes.. and ran the entire 35 minutes that I was supposed to run.. The other 10 minutes were warm up and cool down time.. but we ended up going 4 miles!

I need that goal set saying I have made it half way.. telling me to keep going and push myself to finish .. otherwise I just give up..

So.. timed runs it is.. :)
